Trump’s Neocon Noises–‘Another Possibility’

ed note–yes, another movie clip being used to make a point.

In the scene from the film Hunt for Red October, it has just been learned that Marko Ramius is headed towards America with a new type of super-stealth submarine loaded to the gills with nukes, and that the Russian fleet is looking for this sub with orders to sink it. The obvious conclusion to which all the assembled brass arrive (and for perfectly understandable reasons) is that Ramius is planning to launch his nukes at America. Jack Ryan offers another explanation, a stretch, for sure, but one which turns out to be the right one by movie’s end.

The point is this–Trump is making all sorts of Neo-Con noises–before, duing and after the election–including his appointments and the sweet nothings he is whispering into the ears of the organized Jewish crowd, but that might be just for show.

Yes, it’s a gamble, but one worth taking, considering the stakes that are involved, which–just like in Red October–involve a war between 2 nuclear superpowers.

    Yep, ‘window dressing’. We can speculate to high heaven until he takes office. It’s just human instinct.
    I happen to agree with the editor.
    However, there is always a small, tiny chance that we get the old ‘bait and switch’ treatment.
    Never underestimate the power of OJI.

    I agree Mark that sometimes you have to “think outside the box” and your theory is sound.

    Ramius however was disillusioned by the “evil empire” and when the Soviets had the edge he turned TRAITOR to Russia (get out clause being he was Lithuanian by birth and not Russian therefore he is not a bad bastard and we can relate to him) The evil soviets had annexed Lithuania you see so they had it coming!
    He defected and surrendered the submarine to the peace loving US of A and the world was safe yet again.

    He really should have been hunted down like a dog and sent to the bottom of the Atlantic.

    I enjoyed this film when it first came out but i can see it for the propaganda piece that it is now.

    Please don’t take offense as your hunch is probably correct, just using this film was not the best example when you know a little more about it.

    ed note–no offense taken and I agree-Ramius was a traitor to his nation.
